The Spiral Garden Museum in New Taipei City, Taiwan by Influx Studio

Sunday, December 18th, 2011

Article source: Influx Studio


More open to a wider public, Contemporary Art Museums are becoming hybrids programs and transforming the way that people approach to art and becoming real places to be. The key issue for New Taipei City Museum of Art is how to gather people and art while integrating the landscape into the museum and the museum into the park? In the “Art as lifestyle strategy” the project attributes equal importance to people than to exhibit spaces and art collections. Seeking a new equilibrium in the museum’s spatial structure, the project considers the people circulation as a raw matter to define and construct the museum experience. The architecture proposes to live the museum as a dynamic experience where people shall have an important role in shaping the museum’s image.

Our new museum and cultural centre emerges in contrast to a surrounding vertical skyline – seemingly defying gravity as it ‘floats’ above the ground, its long, curvilinear lines generating a building of enormous fluidity, velocity and lightness within which visitors may ‘experiment’ with the very notion of ‘gallery’.

MAXXI supercedes the notion of the museum as ‘object’ or – presenting a field of buildings accessible to all, with no firm boundary between what is ‘within’ and what is ‘without’. Central to this new reality are confluent lines – walls intersecting and separating to create interior and exterior spaces.

Vellamo: Beacon of the Cityscape

Kotka’s Maritime Centre Vellamo fulfills a visual as well as a strategical function within the cityscape. The figure of the Maritime Centre guides travellers from the heart of the city out to the north-eastern end of the City Terminal and into a harbour of culture. The Maritime Centre is the hallmark of the city’s cultural profile. The role of an individual building in determining the direction of a city’s overall architectural development is nowadays recognised as a model for city planning. The Maritime Centre is a notable addition to landmarks associated with Kotka both nationally and internationally.

An international architectural competition for the Museum of the History of Polish Jews was organized in spring 2005. The first discussions regarding the plan to build such a museum had taken place ten years earlier.

Water Museum in Granada, Spain by Juan Domingo Santos

Renovations in an old watermill, Lanjarón, Granada

The Lanjarón municipality is on the southern flank of Sierra Nevada. It is famous for its crafts, its honey and the quality of its medicinal water, including one of Spain’s most famous spas. The museum project began with a search for a site favoured by the presence of the water in natural conditions. The chosen area is at the entrance to the Sierra Nevada Regional Park, alongside the Lanjarón River and an irrigation ditch that runs around several old buildings that were formerly the municipal abattoir. The museum is installed in on this site to safeguard the natural environment from property speculation with the design of a pedestrian itinerary that connects the new activity with the water infrastructure and several examples of traditional architecture, including watermills and an old public laundry.
